Natalie was proud to have grown up in Calumet City, IL, where she began her vendor business “Natalie’s Novelties” for 30 years. She was the founder of the facebook page “ I survived cal city 60409” with over 2.7k followers. She was very independent and strong willed and raised her children to be the same way. She was a generous person, who would give the shirt off her back. She took many people into her home. Natalie was proud that her son Alex is serving our country in the US Army. She also took pride in her grandchildren and was proud to watch her first born grandson graduate high school. She loved music and was the queen of karaoke. She enjoyed going to many concerts with her children and friends. Her final wish of seeing Elton John was fulfilled in November 2017.
Natalie’s children would like to extend their gratitude to Southern Care Hospice and her nurse Melissa for their compassionate service.
